Topics in Monetary Policy

3.00 credit hours

The course will highlight developments taking place in the United States, but will also compare and contrast with developments in Japan, the United Kingdom, the European Central Bank, and other selected countries. Emphasis will be put on (1) how the financial crisis exposed weaknesses in the official oversight of financial systems, and the new roles being assigned to central banks to remedy these deficiencies; and (2) the extraordinary monetary policy responses of central banks in pursuit of economic stability during the Great Recession, and implications of these responses for the future conduct of monetary policy.
